In brief: Premature ageing
Cofs syndrome has many different sybtypes.
However, in general, type ii, which is the abbreviation you use, shows very limited neurologic development, and most patients do not live beyond 8-10 years of age. It is an inherited disease (autosomal recessive) which is caused by a defect in a dna repair mechanism. Sorry -- this is a very rare and lethal disease.
